I went to the restaurant for a family dinner on 18th February 2017, it was 10 of us. I dine out quite frequent and certain can tell what food is good or bad. This is the restaurant worst than worst; foods are greasy, salty and heavy in monosodium- glutamate which made you drink litres of water afterward. We tried to... More

If you are around i.e. Teddington, Twickhenham, Hampton - you HAVE to visit this place - it is just wonderful. From outside, it does look like the usual Chinese Restaurant, but the food and the service and the friendly staff will make you visit again and again. They do Sunday lunch and you need to book it as their special... More

We have visited Imperial China twice and unfortunately received poor service on both occasions. The man who runs front of house has an extremely poor attitude and should not be the one to greet customers. If Imperial China wants to survive in the bid for independent local restaurants in the area they need to do a lot of work. Sadly... More

I originally went here for dim sum over a year ago. Everything was tasty and authentic Hong Kong fare. Prawn and scallops dumplings are particularly delicious. Dinner is also excellent.If you make it on a Sunday be sure to try the Crispy Pork (only made once a week),Crispy Squid stuffed with prawns are delicious. Smoked Chicken, House special spare ribs,...

Very much average compared with those we have been visiting in West London for many years. We had some usual dim sum and good noodle dishes along traditional sweet and sour chicken with egg fried rice.

Best dim sum in London and one of the best even comparing Hong Kong! All tasted extremely fresh, right amount of salt, delicious and ecstatic experience for our tastebuds.. could not have enough. Very highly recommended. Those reviewers who commented on rude service are not acquainted with the normally raw (NOT rude) Cantonese service. If you are looking for a... More

Great choice of dim sum, better than a lot of the ones in China Town. Found out the Chef used to work at Royal China in Putney which we used to visit before they closed. Will defiantly visit again.
